Sometimes I think, O Lord, that we humans attempt some pretty audacious things in the ways that we try broaden our horizons, extend our influence, and explore our creativity.
Thank you for our audacity, especially for how it shows up in people who make audacious efforts to do audacious things that have the potential to help people who need help.
Forgive us for our audacity, especially for how it shows up in people who make audacious efforts to make profits for themselves with no thought of its cost to others and to make a name for themselves with no thought for the needs of billions of other people on the planet.
We thank you for the progress that audacity can bring.
We repent of the arrogance that audacity can bring.
We ask for the audacity that leads us to attempt things that are not only great but also good.
